It Was 40 Years Ago Today: ‘Let It Bleed’ Released

The first Rolling Stones album to feature Mick Taylor on guitar, Let It Bleed was released on Friday, Nov. 28, 1969.

Ranked at No. 32 on Rolling Stone Magazine‘s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list, Let It Bleed is unique in that contributions from both Taylor and the late Brian Jones can be heard, the latter most notably playing slide guitar on Keith’s “You Got The Silver.”

Leading off with “Gimme Shelter” (No. 38 on the RS 500 Greatest Songs of All Time) and ending with “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” (No. 100), the album slows briefly for Mick’s drawn-out vocals on “Love In Vain” and the twangy “Country Honk” before launching into three straight iconic classics from this period – “Live With Me,” “Let It Bleed” and “Midnight Rambler.”
